With just an episode to go before the mid-season finale, the true horrors of Mount Weather are revealed, while Clarke discovers the ultimate bargaining chip in making peace with the Grounders and rescuing Jasper and co. In a show that has not let up in terms of tension and intrigue, The 100 enters into its finale in spectacular, sometimes disturbing fashion.
Finally, there is a power struggle occurring in the camp that is very interesting indeed. Faced with the decision to follow Clarke’s plan or evacuate, Jaha and acting Chancellor Abby are at loggerheads, but the guards choose the unelected Abby over the democratic Jaha. The strange thing about this is, Abby is not a leader. While Jaha and Kane led according to their own choices, Abby leads according to her daughter. Does this make Clarke the ultimate authority amongst the “skypeople”? Perhaps not officially, but in terms of action, Clarke has been their leader all along.
